Jurgen Klinsmann wants promotion and relegation, but will it happen?

The ESPN FC panel discuss the recent poll in which Major League Soccer players favoured a relegation system similar to Europe's top leagues.
Brian McBride delves deeper into the mentality of promotion and relegation and agrees with Jurgen Klinsmann that it helps prepare players better mentally, but Julie Foudy does not see it happening in the near future.

Jurgen Klinsman was at it again recently. No, not winning high-profile road games, although he did that too with notable victories vs. the Netherlands and world champions Germany.

That said, let's leave Bobby Wood & Co. in Europe for a moment and bring the focus back home, where the promotion and relegation debate has been rekindled after the U.S. national team coach discussed the virtues of the system.

"That furthers our national team," Klinsman told the Rheinische Post. "Something is at stake...

Jurgen Klinsmann's U.S. Gold Cup roster favors experience over youth

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno is not surprised with Jurgen Klinsmann's 23-man Gold Cup roster, where no real "scandalous" exclusions occurred.
United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann discusses his 23-man Gold Cup roster, the opponents his side will face and the importance of the veterans moving forward.
United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann breaks down his roster selection for the Gold Cup, discusses Clint Dempsey's latest troubles and praises the U.S. fan support.
Jurgen Klinsmann has announced his 23-man Gold Cup roster which includes Clint Dempsey, but left out a few notable players including DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler and Break Shea.

Jurgen Klinsmann has presided over a youth movement for most of the past year, but experience trumped potential when the U.S. coach named his roster on Tuesday for next month's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Seventeen players who helped the Americans reach the knockout stage at Brazil 2014 last summer, the most ever in the year after a World Cup, made the Gold Cup squad, which will try to defend the United States' 2013 regional title and automatically qualify for the 2017 Confederations Cup -- the dress rehearsal...

Major League Soccer's Clint Dempsey suspension raises more questions

Dempsey will miss three MLS games, including Seattle's derby vs. Portland on June 28.

It's good to be a big-name star like Clint Dempsey in Major League Soccer.

What other conclusion can possibly be drawn after the league suspended the Seattle Sounders forward on Friday for only three games?

The ruling, which was condemned in a statement by the Professional Soccer Referees Association, came despite the fact that U.S. Soccer Federation's policy manual, to which MLS is required to adhere, clearly and unambiguously stipulates that by ripping up referee Daniel Radford's notepad during...

Clint Dempsey's inexcusable actions toward referee deserve punishment

Exactly one year after scoring for the United States in the World Cup vs. Ghana, Clint Dempsey showed what he thinks of soccer's rule book.

There is no defense for Clint Dempsey's anger-fueled decision to grab a referee's notebook and tear it up during Tuesday night's U.S. Open Cup match between the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers. It was a sign of frustration, but that doesn't excuse Dempsey.

In extra time, the Sounders striker and U.S. national team captain had protested a questionable decision by referee Daniel Radford in sending off teammate Micheal Azira for elbowing Portland's Gaston Fernandez. It appeared that Radford...

Talking Points - Messi and Argentina, Wilshere's brace, U.S. wins -- vote!

Tottenham striker Harry Kane is exactly the perfect fit for Manchester United, according to former Manchester United defender Phil Neville.

Football always inspires debate, and this weekend was no exception. Here are five burning questions on the ESPN FC radar.

Pre-Copa America favourites Argentina blew a two-goal lead against Paraguay to end up with a disappointing 2-2 draw in their tournament opener. Despite Lionel Messi's success at the club level -- Barcelona won the Treble this year -- the Argentine captain still has never led his country to a major title.

Who will win the Copa America?

U.S. wins hint at progress under Jurgen Klinsmann, but clear caveats remain

The ESPN FC experts evaluate the United States Men's National team's performance as they defeated the World Champions Germany 2-1.

In assessing Jurgen Klinsmann's tenure as the U.S. men's national team manager, the word "progress" is fully loaded. Has any progress been made? If so, how much? And what exactly constitutes progress, anyway? Does it come down to results, style or both?

Certainly, over the past four years or so, one's view of progress has largely been determined by one's perspective on the results vs. style debate. There have been some memorable results, but in terms of breaking from the stylistic blueprint of...
